Slack Spot

Standard

What on the gas stove happened to you, Ms. Iron? When one of burners sounded that hot water was ready in you this morning, Mei-Shun put on an oven mitt as usual. Feeling something weird, she took it off to find a part melted — instead of burned. You seem to drip from shut between spout and body, honey. Please let her say thanks and good-bye.

Abrupt Adios

Standard

Oh, Ame-chan, it is really deplorable for Mei-Shun to say so. You suddenly dropped from her mouth on weekend, while using a tooth brush. She had made an appointment to see Dr. M, her home dentist next week, yet was forced to change it into today. With a glance at an X-ray image, the latter lady said that you were over. Thanks and sorry, darling. Now you start a new life in a tiny drawer.

Oh-Oh

Standard

One of colorful thorns on the head of a crystal dragon came off again. Shin gave him to Mei-Shun as a Christmas gift decades before. And oh-no, a tiny stone of Tanzanite fell out of a packet, rolling over and over on the floor to stop somewhere she cannot see. Well, her carelessness made it occur: she held above piece of glass in right hand when tried to open the lid of jewelry box in the left.

Appear Again

Standard

Hi Tora-chan, did you help mom-in-law? She wakes up around 4 : 00 in the morning these days, opens shutters before watering garden flowers. That might be caused by amazing end of 梅雨 2022, declared yesterday in Kanto area. So Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing a rainy score composed by Master Chopin? She wishes it would lead to enough showers to replenish our reservoirs.

Hay Holiday

Standard

Cedar pollen has already begun to make Shin’s nose run from around new year. He prefers ventilation and exercise rather than shutting doors and windows to avoid the source. Mei-Shun was too busy today to walk to the nearest shrine, asked him to draw 2 omikuji lots. Oh, no, one she chose shows 凶=kyo, the worst luck while the other 末吉=sue-kichi, the least lucky.

Nice Numbers

Standard

Mei-Shun was so happy seeing above title on a scale last night, that treated herself to 瓦せんべい from Tokushima Prefecture again. Six weeks have actually passed since she enjoyed this delicacy before, left just in one piece shaped like Mt. Fuji. Prepared a cup of coffee, she looked cookie package on the back by chance. What, below a postcard, its flavor and crispness is due by Nov. 18th?

Only One

Standard

Mei-Shun walked to the nearest shrine after 6-week-long intermission. That might be why she drew 凶=kyo, the worst omikuji lot. She found amazing one coin of 100 yen in a purse, tried just once. Holy Gods, she would visit you more henceforth, please forgive her whose thighs itch a little from a moment before. Now is the time to do stretching under the big tree.

Tough Tyre

Standard

It was the last lesson given by Master Bando this month. Actually, Mei-Shun took it just twice, caused by lower condition. She could not make enough dance with horseies either, for reasons of rainfalls and etc. added. Staying home sounds healthy in a pandemic environment? Well, if good exercise would accompany — she has got one more bag of sugar around waist again!

Protection Pls

Standard

We had 大安=tai-an, the best of 六曜 yesterday. Mei-Shun dropped in the nearest shrine today in 赤口=shakko, among above meaning inconvenient for business, to draw 2 omikuji lots; one for Shin, the other for herself. What, 凶=kyo and 末吉=sue-kichi? They are the worst and second-worse lucks respectively. Could you dear N-狛犬 keep these on behalf of the couple?

Dawn & Dusk

Standard

They sing at, higurashi cicadas Mei-Shun means. She visited the nearest shrine by car, not on foot during midsummer. Surprisingly, both omikuji lots for Shin and herself drawn first were 凶=kyo, the worst luck — her long interval to show honor to Gods might be criticized. She put other coins into the box and tried again. Now two 吉=kichi, good and normal luck appeared.
